What We Do

Professional Events, Workshops and Networking Opportunities

KPACT provides a community for clinicians to share ideas and discuss professional and ethical issues related to psychotherapy with kinky and polyamorous clients. We host professional presentations, networking, and dialogue events quarterly. We also sponsor a Provider Directory to connect clients to affirming professionals of all types.

KPACT has connected me with wonderful colleagues throughout Chicagoland who do important work at the intersections of sexual, gender, and relationship-style variance. I am grateful for this resource as well as the training and learning opportunities!
